Continuing to electrify the culture, platinum-selling Phoenix native and Los Angeles-based artist Kiana Ledé unveils the music video for her buzzing single “Ur Best Friend” with Kehlani via The Heavy Group/Republic Records today. GRAMMY® Award-nominated multiplatinum R&B femme fatale Kehlani even directed the red-hot video herself, which features an appearance by Vic Mensa. You have to see it to believe it…
Right out of the gate, “Ur Best Friend” amassed nearly 2 million worldwide streams to date. In addition to plugs by HYPEBAE and more, UPROXX raved, “Kiana and Kehlani bring their talents together.” HotNewHipHop rated the song “very hot” and predicted it’s “poised to climb the charts.” SoulBounce dubbed it a “sneaky link anthem for Summer 2021,” and Revolt praised how they fuse “their R&B talents together effortlessly in the new track about giving into temptation.”
On the track, a throwback beat simmers in the background with skittering cymbals, airy keys, and head-nodding bass. Kiana’s voice wraps around this thick soul smoke as Kehlani counters with a show stopping turn of her own. Together, these two R&B femme fatales turn up with a scorching and sizzling collaboration punctuated by raw soul. Be on the lookout for the premiere of the music video.
It paves the way for her next album—coming very soon. She’s kept busy this year with collaborations with G-EAZY, THEY., Niko Walters, D-Nice, and Femme It Forward, flexing her dynamic diversity.
It all sets the stage for the release of Kiana’s new album this fall!
